Every morning I come out of my room about 6 am. My cat (who is 1 in Oct), meows really loud at me and follows me everywhere I go, even to the point where he goes between my legs nearly tripping me. I feed him (and his older sister), but if I take too long or ignore his meowing, he takes a swipe at my legs. I try to pat him (he is very to himself after being in a shelter for so long) and he isn't always happy about the pats. How do I get him to stop meowing and tripping me in the morning?
Your cat is trying to communicate to you about something. Perhaps his litter box is too dirty or he doesn't like the toys you have. He might want to sit in a window to watch the outside, but you don't have a shelf where he can do that. Or he might want you to move faster with the feeding, which is probably the problem in this case. Try getting a timed feeder that will dispense the food automatically. This will cause the cats to be eating when you are waking up.
